What would you regret…?

I just wanted to share this video by YouTuber 'LindyBeige', a man whose intelligence and witticisms I much admire. Perhaps, I feel like we should take more stock of what questions are actually saying, rather than what they purport to ask. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohg2ZQcZ_h8&t=0s And what would you regret not having told someone?

Quick Takes: Two Weeks

I fully meant to be part of the blog-hop last week, but, somehow, it escaped me, and this I guess this is a culmination of last week's and this week's adventures. ~1~ I must say it every week, but my time is being swept away from me now, though not necessarily in a bad way. … Continue reading Quick Takes: Two Weeks

It's also one of the reasons I am drawn to want to understand the pragmatics of Linguistics … Continue reading Elizabeth Stokoe Talks About Analysing Conversations

Beautiful People: The Resolutions Edition

Hello, blogosphere. 🙂 Today, I’m linking up with Cait and Sky’s beautiful monthly linkup Beautiful People. And this month it’s about the authors – new year, new goals (supposedly).

I culled and rewrote so many darhlings… I got some … Continue reading Beautiful People: The Resolutions Edition

Quick Takes Friday: Editing and Essays

Well, the term has officially finished for everybody, but I’ve still things to do. Seven Quick Takes is hosted this week by Written by the Finger of God. ~1~ Why? Primarily – an essay for Typical and Atypical Reading due on Monday. I’ve really enjoyed this Psychology module for this term because it links nicely … Continue reading Quick Takes Friday: Editing and Essays
